good morning, everybody, welcome to "today." it is a thursday morning. we've been watching matthew for days and now it seems the very path we feared it would be on is the path it is taking. >> the breaking news on matthew is not good news because the storm is now intensifying this morning as it inches towards the united states. >> now, millions in florida and georgia and south carolina have been told to evacuate and the storm's latest projected path could spell double trouble for the region. we have all of this hurricane center. i know the forecasts are coming fast and furious now. >> they really are now and this could be the worst case scenario. you can see matthew is a category 3 but we expect it to start to intensify as the forward motion begins. here is what we're looking for. it is a close call. the snow storm center by late tonight, early tomorrow morning will be 15 miles off shore. if that shifts a little bit to
7:03 am
coastline for hours. it will continue through saturday morning up to jacksonville as a category 2 storm, again, pounding the coastline, sunday morning, it makes a turn out into the atlantic but then as we move into monday, it starts to create what we could see, a loop. there is another storm system throughout that could keep this close to shore. so, this is just about as bad a scenario as you can the bahamas. now to miami and central, coastal georgia. 11 million people under hurricane warning. 2 million under hurricane watches the impact aerkz the bahamas this morning, 10 to 18 foot storm surges. southern florida starting late tonight, wind gusts, 60 to 95 miles an hour. rain fall, three to seven, with storm surges. a 6 to 9 foot storm surge as you get into northern florida. wind gusts of 100 miles an hour.

7:32 am
across the area. >> reporter: good morning, guys. we have kind of took a little bit of shelter here. as you can see, we were standing out, pieces of the roof of our hotel started flying off so we had to kind of back up a little bit. but major hurricane matthew is making its way toward nassau rather quickly now, continuing to strengthen. last night when we went to bed it was around i believe it's went up 20 millibars in seven hours. waves are starting to crank up pretty big behind us. pieces of roof here are coming off. we have a restaurant right behind where our room is. there goes roof right there. pieces of the roof are flying off of that. so as we continue to go through the morning hours here on nassau, at least for the next eight hours or so, i'm thinking that we are going to deal with some major hurricane conditions that are going to continue to get worse and not get better.
7:33 am
thank you very much. mr. roker is watching all of this over in our hurricane center. hey, al. >> guys, here's a point i want to make. this doesn't necessarily even have to make landfall to cause real damage. in fact, it is forecast to just stay offshore and that's going to be the problem. by tonight we start to see tropical force winds from miami up to west palm beach. then we move in to early tomorrow morning. the eye could get onshore, but even if it doesn't, you can see this area in white. es between melbourne and west palm beach. we move in to friday night. we're now up around jacksonville. again, right on shore. we are talking about hurricane-force winds. the center of the eye is about 45 miles wide. all right? i should say, it's 25 miles wide. the hurricane-force winds extend out about 45 miles. again, as we move into saturday morning, you've got some those winds from savannah into
7:34 am

7:37 am
a sentiment echoed by friendly professional clowns. >> mostly i feel bad for the kids that have to deal with being scared of these, you know, mentally ill people. it is annoying to us as real clowns. it makes us sad that we even have to address this. >> police across the country have been tracking down and arresting teens who are making online threats against schools. they've also arrested some of those who are dressing up as clowns and scaring people in person. in fact, one man in kentucky was charged not only conduct, but with wearing a mask in public which is a city ordinance. matt and savannah? >> joe, thank you. really not funny. just ahead, we'll turn back to politics with a live interview with the republican vice presidential candidate, mike pebs. pence. >> we're going to get the i'm jamie foxx for verizon. in the nation's largest independent study by rootmetrics, again, verizon is the number one network. hi, i'm jamie foxx for sprint. and i'm jamie foxx for t-mobile.

7:43 am
frank gore, watching him run 80 yards for a touchdown, then saying did you see that handoff? >> well, first, before i respond to that, great question, great colts reference, too, matt, thanks. let me say, our hearts and our prayers are very much with the people of florida and the people of haiti as hurricane matthew approaches. i hope every american is keeping our neighbors to the south in their prayers and in their encourage people, encourage people to support relief efforts that will likely be -- likely be challenged in the days ahead. but with regard to that, i have to tell you, some people think i won the debate the other night. i leave that to the pundits. i honestly do believe that donald trumpid win the debate. it was donald trump's vision that i was describing. it was donald trump's message to make america great again.
7:44 am
that vision with the american people and sharing the choice that we face as americans was a great honor for me. >> governor, you are getting a lot of credit for your performance at that debate. but lot of people have noticed that you spent time denying things that trump said that he did in fact say. as one paper put it, it is a clinton attack ad waiting to happen. and sure enough. take a look. >> let's start with not praising vladimir putin a leader. donald trump and mike pence have said he is a great leader. >> no, we haven't. >> putin's been a very strong leader for russia. >> vladimir putin has been a stronger leader in his country than barack obama has been in this country. >> more nations should get nuclear weapons. don't try to defend that. >> he never said that. >> wouldn't you rather in a certain sense have japan have nuclear weapons? saudi arabia? absolutely. >> governor pence, that ad actually goes on for more than a minute with a bunch of contradictions. i guess the question is, even
7:45 am
deny statements that you know are on video and on audio, are going to come right back to bite you the next day? >> i don't think so at all, savannah. the mischaracterizations and the way tim kaine and hillary clinton continue to take donald trump's statements out of context. it was something i just wasn't dete. toerat during the >> but those are direct quotes. in context. >> well, well, tim kaine actually said that i that will vladimir putin was a better leader. >> you said stronger. >> i corrected him. >> you said stronger leader. >> i said stronger. savannah, there is a difference. he was wrong. i was right. what i was observing is, quite frankly, that the russian reset has been a disastrous failure for hillary clinton. she said it was her number one priority when she was secretary of state. and now since the russian reset, we've seen vladimir putin
7:46 am
strength on the world stage that's resulted in a russian invasion of ukraine and now the humanitarian crisis in syria being driven by russian aggression. >> governor, on a couple -- >> i do think observing that the small and bullying leader of russia has been stronger on the world stage for his country than hillary clinton and barack obama is just simply a statement of fact and something that we have to change. >> governor, on a couple of occasions, on apl occasions, tim kaine gave you a laundry list of insulting comments that donald trump has made over the course of the last year and asked you to defend them. and instead of defending them, you either said he really didn't say those things or you changed the subject to hillary clinton. do you find it hard -- can you say to us today that you cannot defend some of the things that donald trump has said about women and mexican immigrants and john mccain and a federal judge
7:47 am
>> well, it's the greatest honor of my life to stand shoulder to shoulder with donald trump. what i think most americans saw was that after tim kaine ran through a rapid obviously memorized litany of personal insults, then he said that donald trump and i were running the insult-driven campaign. >> yeah. but in all due respect, governor, you just did it again. >> i told him i'd be happy to go line by line, let him saying that donald trump said something about a year-and-a-half ago donald trump was talking about the whole issue of criminal aliens in the country. he conveniently omitted that donald trump has said that even many of the people that come in to this country illegally are good people. he left that out. but look, this campaign has been focused on the issues of most importance to the american people. i want to give the moderator a lot of credit in that debate. you all have a tough job out there and you all do it well. i thought elaine did a good job
7:48 am
the big issues which are national security, getting this economy moving again, and so to be honest with you, i'm incredibly proud to be able to stand shoulder to shoulder with donald trump. we'll take on all those things. but i will point out to you that when i pointed out that hillary clinton had called half of donald trump and my supporters a basket of deplorables, tim kaine didn't say a word about that or defend that either. >> he actually did. he said that she had apologized >> i thought it was a good, energetic debate and i hope the campaign is better for it. >> short question, governor pence. do you think that donald trump is a role model for children? >> i, frankly, think hillary clinton and donald trump have many admirable qualities that young people can look up to today. i think donald trump is a strong leader. he fights for what he believes
7:49 am
difficult time in his business. demonstrated the resilience and the smarts to marshal a real comeback. it is the kind of comeback he can lead for america. and i want to recognize hillary clinton as the first woman to be a major party nominee in american history. so there are aspects of these people -- you know, nobody's perfect. i can only think of one person in human history that's perfect. but i think there is qualities in both of these people that young people can admire. >> to be continued. >> we got to let ito unfortunately. governor pence, thanks for taking time this morning. appreciate it. >> good to see you. >> thank you. good to be with you. coming up, hurricane matthew matthew gaining strength on a path towards florida. what millions need to do right what millions need to do right

8:36 am
little bit more of a dramatic bent than most sitcoms which makes it really fun to act on. >> it is also potentially a big "'70s show" reunion. >> we like to work with our friends. >> basically like i've got an idea. >> a lot of these ranches are run by immigrant labor. think it is a hot button topic in the country right now. i think for a socially conscious sitcom that's representing a er think there is probably a different conservative point of view when you get around immigration in rural america. think it is important to connect. >> i feel a connection because we both have little girls that just turned 2 and we both have babies on the way. so give me some advice. >> give you -- give me advice! all my friends are like you're going from playing zone to going to man-to-man. >> that's what everyone says. >> it's like intensely scary. >> totally scary. >> plus, like the first one -- i
